    Pros

    Empowered to win. Has a proven ideaprenuership methodology that helps the company grow and help one grow. Brainstorming is a part of daily exercise. Lean methodologies drive efficiency for the company and for its customers.

    Cons

    Growth is challenging especially when you are far off from the boss especially onsite. You will have a good customer satisfaction, but the offshore immediate management does not get it.

    I have been working at HCL Technologies full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    It is a great experience working with a great organisation like HCL Technologies. I am getting ample opportunities to showcase myself. The training organised by the company is always extensive and the faculties are always excellent.Moreover, HCL is a learning curve, always there is something new that you pick at work and try and implement it to see to the better of your operation.
    The management is supportive of your plan and have enrolled many a project for ideas to be used on a common platform and recognized the deserving ones.
    The support from management is good and the co- workers attitude is always welcoming.

    Cons

    Since company is big, you need to devote considerably.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is very friendly and supportive but would be more helpful if they take the feedback from the grass-root level.

    Current Employee - Global Human Resources in Quincy, MA

    I have been working at HCL Technologies as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    - Every individual is equipped with the freedom to perform out of the box.
    - Entrepreneurship is a built-in attribute of HCL's work culture, which we call "ideaprenurship" here.
    - It is an equal opportunity employer which offers the same wide space to everyone irrespective of your type of professional engagement (Contractor or a Full Time employment).

    Cons

    - If you don't have a goal or a vision to achieve that, then it's just an organization which runs the payroll on time, invests (or wastes a lot of time) in learning, takes care (involves in irrelevant activities) of personal development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep empowering people the way you guys have been doing from past two decades. Core is the foundation which can bear all the transformational changes by the time. Please hold this gratitude always.
